We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"IBM Integration Bus has a complete set of tools that are implemented between rules when it comes to run time, but it's not easy to understand."
"My favorite feature is the XML-based DFDL mapping, which is a tool that allows you to graphically map legacy data formats to modern data formats."
"From a performance point of view, it's very good and it doesn't need very much in terms of CPU resources."
"This solution is very reliable and it is easy to learn."
"The solution's features are all quite useful. We use all of them."
"The integration with other tools is excellent. It integrates well with batch issues."
"It has the ability to be deployed without rewriting the code."
"The biggest advantage of this solution is that it is very easy to learn, and very easy to build applications."
"The solution is stable. We have gone for months or years without any issue. There are no memory restarts, so from my point of view, it's very stable."
"The most valuable feature is the software development environment."
"We usually had used PowerCenter for master data integration (by replication). But in some cases, it was better to use Fuse for providing the master data online. It doesn't make it necessary to replicate data."
"The installation is quite okay. We don't really change much in the configuration. Most of the time, most of the settings remain with the default and we are able to handle our needs using the default setting."
"I would like to see more metered rest and API support. IBM is already working on it on Version 11, but it still needs improvement."
"This solution would benefit from improvements to the configuration interface."
"This product uses the PVU (Processor Value Unit) license model from IBM, and it is something that should be improved."
"I would like to be able to run and install this solution on different platforms."
"The user interface could be improved in a future release."
"IBM could improve its connectivity."
"I would like for them to make the training much easier."
"One drawback that I have found is that there are issues with using the Java connector."
"The pricing model could be adjusted. The price should be lower."
"Our clients would like to see the user interface improved so that it is more user-friendly."
"I don't know the product last versions. I know they are migrating a microservices concepts. We still didn't get there... but we are in the process."
"Currently, the main point of concern for us is how flexible it is to cater to different requirements. It should be more flexible."
"Our licensing is based on a five-year contract, and as far as I know, there are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fee."
"The price of this product could be lower."
"The solution requires a license and is very expensive here in India."
"This is an open-source product that can be used free of charge."
Red Hat JBoss Fuse is a lightweight, flexible integration platform that enables rapid integration across the extended enterprise - on-premise or in the cloud. JBoss Fuse includes modular integration capabilities, an enterprise service bus (ESB), to unlock information.
